Thousands attend Belfast Gay Pride parade

Published 02/08/2008

Thousands of people have attended today's Gay Pride parade in Belfast.

Members of the Free Presbyterian Church held at least two small protests around the parade but the afternoon passed off incident-free.

The parade was overshadowed by a row over comments on homosexuality made by DUP MP Iris Robinson.

She reportedly claimed gay sex was an abomination.

Today Alliance Party official Gerry Lynch reiterated demands for Mrs Robinson to resign as chair of the Stormont Health Committee.
